Black & White Cards with a POP of Color

I LOVE making cards, and the A2 size (or thereabouts) is my favorite… enough space for a little message, but not so much space that I feel I have to write a short novel.  So, when I was making cards for my summer camp alumni group the other day, and...Read More »

Gator Hat

I recently found out that the mascot of my summer camp – the Gator – was replaced with a pretty, albeit generic, nature scene.  The gator had been around for 33 years!  Generations of campers see our gator and think of our camp.
